This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Supreme Court's decision in Reno v. ACLU, which, along with Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, established the framework for internet free speech and liability that remains in place today in the US. Join EFF Activism Director Rainey Reitman, EFF International Director Danny O'Brien, and other digital rights experts on December 8 to examine the continuing viability of the Reno vision in face of multiplying concerns about sex trafficking online, terrorist content, election interference, and other very hard issues. Topics will include the Reno vision of the internet; strategy for internet policy - then and now; and challenges to free expression online today.
"Reno at 20" will bring together key architects of the strategies that culminated in the Reno v. ACLU decision and those in industry, advocacy groups, and academia currently shaping internet policy.
